About this title


In these poems, Kathryn Stripling Byer searches for the language of ageing, for a way of confronting every woman's fear of looking in the mirror and seeing an old woman staring back. Inspired by a series of photographs entitled Evelyn, which depicts a former artist's model in her declining years, still full of life and facing death with flair and wit - these poems contemplate the enigmatic, but inevitable, process of growing old.
